August Film - Anomalisa - 15th and 24th August

The second screening of our August film - Anomalisa - will be on Wednesday, 24th August at 6.50 pm. Wine will be available to purchase on the night.

Charlie Kaufman, the mind behind 'Being John Malkovich' and 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind', returns with 'Anomalisa', which David Stratton considers the most original film he has seen in a long while and one of the most exciting.  He gives it four and a half stars!  A British born man flies from his home in LA to work in Cincinnatti and checks into the Fregoli Hotel.  Fregoli is the name given to a rare disease in which the victim holds a delusional belief that different people are the same person, able to change his or her appearance.  This, according to Stratton, is a significant clue to the meaning of the film.  Prepare yourself for a heartfelt and singular experience, funny, sad, shattering and honest, as the man struggles with his inability to connect with other people.  A thought-provoking treat!
